At MPRC, we are finding that participants have been donating more than just good spirits! Altough we do not encourage participants to donate, several have been expressing their gratitude and trust in our services in the form of donations.
AW is no exception. He was motivated to donate to the center because of love, charity, compassion and the desire to help others. MPRC staff decided to interview AW to find out more information about his experiences in the center:
